Well that's the entire concept: It's simple. For people who need advanced
backups, and other burning tools, they can simply install k3b or a plethora
of other burning programs we have in the repositories alone. This is a
designed as something for a new user who just wants to throw some files on a
disk, burn a DVD for their player, and so on. It doesn't need to be anything
advanced. k3b is great, but these advanced features aren't so optional,
they're all right there in your face soon after install, this can scare many
simpler users.
